We had a wonderful day meeting, greeting, and participating in a demo scrimmage with other teams at the Silicon Valley Fall Festival. Thanks to the Rotary Club of Cupertino for hosting this awesome annual event.
Today, we finished seven qualification matches ranked 4th. Despite a few hiccups, we are happy to say that our robot now has a consistent Habitat 3 climb and is performing at the level we had hoped to achieve.
We finished qualification matches ranked third. As the third-seeded alliance captain, we invited HAI-Panda (Team 6803 from Shanghai, China) and RoboWarriors (Team 2659 from Mission Hills, California) to form the alliance.
Today, we led tours for over 130 local Daisy, Junior, and Cadette Girl Scouts that introduced them to FIRST and robotics. Each girl completed a scavenger hunt in the pits and cheered on teams during matches. They met international teams, learned about interesting mechanisms, and talked with FRC students.
